Today was a whirlwind of activities, working out, posing practice, and last minute contest prep details. I was feeling ok about things until I realized that I am leaving for Calgary in two days to get my first coat of spray tan applied. I also realized that this is the last Tuesday before the event.
There are no more Tuesdays before I get on stage in my bedazzled suit! What have I gotten myself into?!
It was at this realization that I panicked. I broke out into a bit of a cold sweat and started to blink a lot, and I mean A LOT. There is so much to do and not enough time! My brain went into overdrive and like a Catholic nun going over her rosary beads, I started to go over all the things I still need to do.
I caught sight of myself in the mirror…I did not look good.
I do not want to look like this on Saturday, so I got down to business and decided to organize myself.
Coffee, sharpies, paper, and all my notes were piled on the dining room table and many lists were created.
There’s a lot to do…and I don’t want to lose sight of any of it, so it only made sense to make it huge and post everything in my dining room. This doesn’t seem over the top at all…right?
There are some weird things on the lists…
My favorite things on the lists are:
- Make checklists (my OCD is really starting to show, isn’t it?)
- Saran wrap for my suit
- Exfoliate so that I don’t look like an Oompah Loompah
- Bring ‘cute’ outfits (apparently I am worried that I will bring ugly clothes along…)
Once I finished the lists and stuck them on the wall with copious amount of painters tape I felt better. WAY better. No need to freak out…I’ve got this! Right?
One thing I did forget to put on one of the to do lists was drink water.
Too bad I’m not thirsty. At least it’s not the 4.5 gallons of water I thought I was supposed to drink!
So I’m done freaking out. I have checked that off my list of ‘To Do’s’. Now onto having fun doing the craziest thing I have done yet in life…and I’ve done a few crazy things!
October 16th is going to be interesting and random, that’s for sure!
